The Crescenzago site is a free area of around 1.3 hectares, used as an interchange parking area for the homonymous metropolitan line 2 stop, adjacent to the site. Situated in the north east precinct of Milan, in the Cimiano district in Municipality 3, the area has a five minute metropolitan connection to the Lambrate Milan station and to the University campus, less than 15 minutes from the Central Milan stations, the high speed train hub and the Milan Porta Garibaldi, in the Porta Nuova district.

The site is near the registered office of the RCS MediaGroup S.p.A. publishing house, within easy reach of the Lambro Park and one stop from the internationally renowned San Raffaele IRRC (Institute for the Research and Cure of Cancer) Hospital.

It lies in a mainly residential area, where popular building trade  dating back to the 60s alternate with other more recent ones, such as the winner of the “Abitare Milano/1” in Via Civitavecchia competition and the “Urbana New Living” social housing compendium in Via Rizzoli.

The Milano2030 strategy consistently determines one of the “Social Residential Building Trade Areas” within the site perimeter, in which an incentivising town planning regulation aimed at densifying public areas in favour of installing social housing for rent at accessible prices.

The aim is to reinvent an area that is underused today and is already served by public transport, in order to experiment with new models and residential services, through projects generating social mix, minimising CO2 emission, and maximising the integration of green areas in relation to context, thereby triggering a virtuous regeneration process for the district.

Il sito Crescenzago è un’area libera di circa 1,3 ha, utilizzata come parcheggio di interscambio per l’omonima fermata della linea metropolitana 2, adiacente al sito. Situata nel quadrante nord-orientale di Milano, nel quartiere di Cimiano nel Municipio 3, l’area è connessa in 5 minuti di metropolitana alla Stazione di Milano Lambrate e al quartiere universitario di Città Studi, in meno di 15 minuti alle stazioni di Milano Centrale, hub dei treni ad alta velocità, e Milano Porta Garibaldi, nel distretto di Porta Nuova.

Il sito si trova in prossimità della sede della casa editrice RCS MediaGroup S.p.A., a poca distanza dal Parco Lambro e a una fermata dall’IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele, di fama internazionale, in un contesto prevalentemente residenziale, dove edifici di edilizia popolare risalenti agli anni 60 si alternano con altri di più recente realizzazione, come l’intervento esito del Concorso "Abitare a Milano/1" in via Civitavecchia e il compendio di housing sociale “Urbana New Living” in via Rizzoli.

Coerentemente, la strategia Milano2030 individua nel perimetro del sito una delle “Aree per Edilizia Residenziale Sociale” in cui è prevista una disciplina urbanistica incentivante volta a densificare aree pubbliche per favorire l’insediamento di abitazioni in affitto a prezzi accessibili. L’obiettivo è reinventare un’area oggi sottoutilizzata, già servita dal trasporto pubblico, per sperimentare nuovi modelli e servizi abitativi, attraverso progetti in grado di generare mix sociale, minimizzare le emissioni di CO2, e massimizzare l’integrazione del verde in relazione al contesto, per avviare un processo di rigenerazione virtuoso per il quartiere.

Social housing for rent at accessible prices, experimenting with new models and residential services to generate social mix, integrating green areas and minimising CO2 emissions.
